Auto parts factory resumes production after 4-day strike in east China

NANJING, June 10 (Xinhua) -- An auto parts plant in east China's Jiangsu Province with investment from Taiwan has resumed production after a 4-day strike, local authorities said Thursday.

Workers at KOK Machinery (Kunshan) Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of Taiwan's KOK International in Kunshan City, reached an agreement with their employer Tuesday and have returned to their jobs, a municipal government official who declined to give his name said.

More than 100 workers gathered at the company's gate on July 5, demanding a salary increase. The protestors blocked the nearby No. 312 National Highway on July 7, Monday.

The company's general manager arrived from Taiwan Monday night and drafted a solution.

The company's executives negotiated with worker representatives on Tuesday and reached an agreement, the official said.

He said the company failed to attend to the workers' complaints in time because the general manager had returned to Taiwan to visit his critically ill father.

The plant, with a registered capital of 35.88 million U.S. dollars, has about 1,500 employees and produces auto parts for Toyota, Honda and Volkswagen's assembly lines in China.
